Google: Friend or Foe to Legacy Banks?

Late last year, it was announced that Google Pay will partner with legacy financial institutions in the development and distribution of checking accounts through a new service called Google Plex. In addition, Google announced a partnership with Deutsch Bank for cloud implementation and co-innovation of new products and services.

For the banks, these partnership can be a way to quickly grow customer relationships and expand market coverage. These partnerships could also threaten banks that fail to execute real-time personalized digital strategies.

Our guest for the show is Yolande Piazza, VP of financial services for Google Cloud. Yolande joined Google in mid-2020 after almost 15 years at Citi where she most recently managed fintech partnerships. In this episode, we discuss the financial service strategies at Google. We also discuss what the future of banking may look like and who the players may be.
